The ability to bypass defenses. A sub-power of Absolute Attack.

Also Called

  • Armor Piercing


The user is able to bypass an opponent's defenses and do equal damage no matter how strong, durable, magically-enhanced or seemingly impenetrable the defense is.




  • May not work against on Absolute Defense.
  • Some targets may be able to withstand more damage anyway, such as if the target has Regenerative Healing Factor or if it is very large.
  • If the target is immune to the attribute of the attack (such as Intangibility or Chronolock) instead of defense-based resistance, then it is useless.
